Twice Retired

by Ken (Albuquerque, NM, USA)


I have a Breville JE900 juicer that is amazing. I have some medical problems, but that is not the reason for buying a juicer. Out of necessity I needed something to put up lots of fruit.

I bought 110 pounds of pears at a real low price and had pear sauce and smoked pears coming out my ears. My wife suggested we juice some of them and so off to the store we went. This particular store had only one brand of juicer and am glad it was this brand, because we love it. All the reviews on this juicer are true.

So now that we have it, we are trying lots of fun things with it. Just today I was making apple juice and saw half a watermelon in the refrigerator. Well, I tried it plain and it was ok, but it needed a kicker.

I took the juice from a can of pineapple chunks and mixed it with the watermelon juice, and wow! Tasted really good. So tomorrow we are getting another watermelon and a fresh pineapple, not the canned stuff.

Oh, the smoked pears. Cut in half and remove the seeds with a melon baller, put pear halves on a pan or tray and add brown sugar, butter, cinnamon and Amaretto. Smoke or grill until tender. Serve with ice cream.
